September 23 Chapter Meeting – Hearing Assistive Technology Presentation!
With so much technology out there these days, it’s easy to get overwhelmed! That’s why both our September and October meetings will focus on hearing assistive technology (HAT) and how it can benefit you.
At our September 23 meeting, our guest speaker will be Katie Wright, president of the Long Beach/Lakewood HLAA chapter, who recently completed the N-CHATT (Network of Consumer Hearing Assistive Technology Trainers) program through HLAA National. Katie will discuss how we can use HAT to support our individual hearing and communication needs at home, work, school, and the community. Please join us for this informative presentation!
At our October 28 chapter meeting, we’ll keep the tech theme going by having a “Technology Show and Tell.” We’ll ask members to bring in, or share about, a specific technology or strategy that works for them. This could be a phone app, a specific listening device, or a workplace communication tool. The best way we learn is from each other!
Our meetings take place East Room of the Wingate Building at the Huntington Memorial Hospital, 100 W. California Ave, Pasadena.
